Wycombe midfielder Curtis Thompson explained his injury woes are firmly behind him after making his comeback in Wycombe's 3-0 win over Rochdale on Saturday.

Thompson made his first appearance of the season and played the full 90 minutes at Spotland, turning in an excellent performance to help the Blues to their first away win of the campaign.

The former Notts County man had to have surgery on his shoulder after playing through the pain barrier towards the end of last season but admitted he was delighted to be back pain-free.

He said: "It was very frustrating.

"Any injury is frustrating and to have surgery is not great but it happens in football and you just have to deal with and get on it with it but I have now dealt with it and I am back to full fitness now and looking forward to kicking on."

Thompson forged a superb partnership with Dominic Gape last term and the 26-year-old was delighted to rekindle old ties for the former Saints man.

He added: "I loved every minute of it.

"I missed being out there with Gapey and watching him every week. He is a phenomenal player and it is just great to be back at the side of him."

This weekend sees the Blues take on Peterborough on Saturday (3pm) and Thompson is champing at the bit to play in some key matches at home, where the Blues are unbeaten.

He commented: "The fans play their part massively and we are very comfortable at home because we know we can pick up wins and on the road we are also looking to get positive results this season."
